MLL: Cannons break Outlaws unbeaten streak

July 25, 2020

Turns out the Boston Cannons have more fight in them than we gave them credit for. A day after losing to the Connecticut Hammerheads, the Cannons roared back like the veteran team they are to beat the previously undefeated Denver Outlaws 10-8. With the Bayhawks beating the Hammerheads earlier in the day, the field for Saturday’s semi-finals is set. And if you enjoyed Friday’s heavyweight matchup between Boston and Denver,…


ILWT Feature: Divisional differences, or how athletes are closing the gap in professional lacrosse

July 24, 2020

It used to be that, on average, entire professional lacrosse rosters were made up of two groups. One group of professional players (the majority group in Major League Lacrosse) came from Division I colleges and universities in the United States. The second group was made up of outstanding Canadian players without the experience of collegiate Division I play in the United States. It seemed like a player had to fit into…


MLL: Outlaws take over top spot with win over Bayhawks

July 23, 2020

The Denver Outlaws walked away the winner in a match against the Chesapeake Bayhawks that was decided in overtime as two previously unbeaten teams took to the field on a rainy night in Annapolis. The Outlaws remain the only undefeated team in the MLL with just two days of regular season play left. Brian Kormondy fired a bullet with 6:41 left to give Denver the 13-12 victory in a game…


MLL: Lightning display can’t stop Outlaws in 12-11 win over Lizards

July 23, 2020

Tuesday night the Denver Outlaws (3-0) defeated a tough New York Lizards (0-3) team 12-11. Despite New York’s record, this was the toughest battle so far for the Outlaws during this season. The game started with a very quick pace and the offense was on fire for both teams with eight different goals scorers in the first quarter, the final goal scored by the Lizards Nicky Galasso just as the…


MLL: Outlaws led by young guns in 15-10 win over Barrage

July 20, 2020

Sorry… Ward, who? Currier, who? Sunday, the Denver Outlaws defeated the Philadelphia Barrage (0-2) 15-10 at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium as the MLL continues its shortened season in Annapolis. In our Outlaws’ team preview, we mentioned the loss of two bonafide stars to the PLL. But an impressive 2-0 start for the Outlaws has the team looking even better than they did the last four years challenging for the MLL…


MLL: Hammerheads fall to Outlaws in first outing

July 19, 2020

The Denver Outlaws successfully conquered the Connecticut Hammerheads 18-6 in the last game of the MLL’s triple header on Saturday. As the sun began setting on a boiling hot day in Annapolis, the night heated up for the Outlaws. Perhaps still feeling the sting of losing a championship last year, it was clear from the beginning that Denver felt they had something to prove. And prove it they did, firing five first…


MLL: Outlaws counting on Grant to lead offense in MLL tournament

July 18, 2020

The Denver Outlaws open the 2020 MLL campaign versus the Connecticut Hammerheads tonight at 7 p.m. Denver lost the championship last season by a single goal so have lofty expectations for this shortened season. However, with Dillon Ward and Zach Currier defecting to the PLL, the Outlaws will have to draw on their other big guns this season if they want to win another championship. John Grant Jr. is back…

ILWT Feature: In conversation with Dillon Ward

July 3, 2020

#TradeWard. Nah, we’re just kidding. Why anyone would want to trade one of the best goaltenders in the world, we have no idea. In addition to being a great keeper, Dillon Ward (not Dylan) is a truly decent person. You’d be hard pressed to find an accolade Ward hasn’t earned at any level of lacrosse, indoor or outdoor. Most recently he helped Canada capture the gold medal at the 2019…


NLL: Mammoth victory over Philadelphia

March 5, 2020

Despite a fourth quarter surge that looked like Philadelphia could pull off a late run into victory, the Colorado Mammoth and Dillon Ward held on to claim the win in a gritty 11-10 game on Saturday. The big talk of the week was how recently acquired Tyler Digby would adjust to the Colorado offense without a lot of time to acclimate to their style of play. Digby seemed to fit…
